Woman Eating Burrito Causes Rollover Injury Crash on 10 Freeway at Indian Canyon Drive

PALM SPRINGS, California (March 10, 2015) — A distracted driver trying to eat a burrito behind the wheel caused a major-injury crash Tuesday morning.

Two people were injured when one driver struck two cars causing one of them to overturn on the westbound Interstate 10 Freeway, just east of Indian Canyon Drive at mile marker 33, according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.

About 7:11 a.m., CHP officers responded to a call involving a person who was trapped after a pickup truck overturned multiple times on the freeway. The white 1999 Ford F250 pickup truck was reportedly struck by a woman in a 2009 Nissan Altima who was allegedly eating a burrito and crashed into the driver.  The driver of the pickup truck became trapped when the vehicle landed on its side. He suffered major injuries and was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs for treatment.

Lucero Perez of Mecca who was driving the Nissan also struck Eva Uriostequi, 43, of Redlands who was in a 2005 Toyota Sequoia. Perez suffered minor injuries in the crash.

The collision also knocked out about 10 feet of guardrail in the center divider of the freeway.

Police will investigate the cause of the crash and issue a report determining liability.

Riverside County Personal Injury Lawyers

Johnson Attorneys Group is a personal injury law firm that represents clients who have been injured in traffic accidents throughout California.

It’s difficult to negotiate a fair settlement from the insurance company on your own.

Most insurance companies will examine the facts of your case to determine what they believe is a fair settlement.  One of the factors that determines the value of your case is how much insurance you and the other involved parties have purchased as coverage.

Additionally, the extent of your injuries, property damage and how much time you have lost from work will factor into the value of a case. There may also be more than one person liable for your injuries and this can increase the value of a claim. When a driver is working for a commercial establishment or they are a government employee, this brings in a second responsible party.

Johnson Attorneys Group will gather all the relevant facts in pursuit of justice on your behalf. We want you to get better and get a fair settlement.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
